Re: Is the Rim Brake Dead? | Disc Brakes Versus Rim Brakes

I agree with everything you have said. I have now moved on to direct-mount rim brakes (Tarmac SL6) over the traditional center-mount rim brakes. DM brakes do not go off center and have improved stopping power and modulation due to lower flex in the caliper arms. As for my next road bike purchase: if I am unable to find rim brakes as a standard offering, I will go custom steel in order to stay with rim brakes.
Long live the road rim-brake ha.
